UNIANDES ACTIVITIES IN CMS 2008
1. Continued RPC commissioning with 2 graduate students. More than 100
shifts/student of RPC offline DQM performed by our students in 2008.
2. Contributed to RPC software with a 6 months stay of one professor and
the involvement of a postdoc from our group.
3. Participated in Data operations group with one Engineer.
4. Stays of 6 months of two engineers to work in preshower detector
5. Defined thesis topics for our 2 PhD students:
- Search for Heavy Stable Charged Particles using the RPC system of
CMS
- Search for squarks and gluinos in events with muons, jets and missing
ET
5. Signed MOU between COLCIENCIAS and CMS
6. TIER 3 node at UNIANDES up and running.
7. Contributed with 25 man-months of service tasks in 2008.

PLANS FOR 2009
-The two students and the postdoc will remain all 2009 at CERN. Students
will slowly move from commissioning activities and will concentrate in
SUSY and Exotics physics analysis groups.
- Plan to have three engineers in data operations group the whole 2009
-Trip of Marcello Maggi and Giuseppe Iaselli to Bogota in April 2009
ISSUES TO FACE IN 2009
HELEN Program ends by end of April 2009. Need to find other sources to
support the stay of our students. We have money to keep our students for the
rest of 2009 but need to figure out the way to finance their stays in 2010.
Also we expect to bring new students in 2010 but that depends on financial
support.

The new version of HELEN program:
Unfortunately Colombia has not a S&T agreement
signed with the EU.

We could have a chance to participate in the Erasmus Mundus program
Still need to look for other options: INFN?

CONCLUSIONS
-UNIANDES group is very active in CMS experiment
- We have a TIER 3 running we need to optimize its use in the data
analysis of our students.
-We are interested in continuing our participation in the RPC project, we
are looking for new students
- We are looking forward for the start up of LH collisions to complete
theses of Camilo and Alberto.
- We are facing now a challenge to look for extra sources of finnancial
support.
